All students desiring to pursue a Bachelor of Music, Bachelor of Music Education, or Bachelor of Arts in Music degree must audition before members of the appropriate applied music faculty for acceptance into a music degree program.
Through piano pedagogy courses and internships in piano pedagogy, our students participate in the teaching of the Piano Laboratory Program in which elementary-age students from the community obtain their first piano lessons. Our alumni have chosen such diverse career paths as operating independent studios, teaching in large music schools or elementary schools, and teaching at the college level.
